Cyber Security Training

Cyber Security Training is critical as cyber threats abound in our always-connected work environments.

What’s more, threats like malware are continually changing. The common thread for some of the most significant threats today is people: your employees. Hackers know people can provide soft attack surfaces to make their data exploits successful.

The 2020 State of Privacy and Security Awareness Report found that 28% of employees lack confidence in identifying a phishing email, showing the need for security awareness training. Another study determined 48% of data breaches are found to be due to negligent employees.

The point of cyber security training is to equip employees with the knowledge they need to combat these threats. Employees cannot be expected to know what threats exist or what to do about them on their own. They need to be taught what their employers consider risky or acceptable, what clues to look for that indicate threats, and how to respond when they see them.

These days, security is everyone’s responsibility. Even seemingly harmless behaviors or small mistakes can have big consequences. Security awareness training helps get everyone in an organization on the same page, reduces risks and incidents, and helps the entire workforce protect their organization and themselves.
